Happy Winter Birthday!


Happy weekend Teatimer's it's DT member Natalie here with a winter birthday card. I just love the Winter Wreath set it's such a beautiful design and works so well on it's own or combined with the critters. To get started here's a list of materials I used.

· Winter wreath stamps and dies

· Salvaged Patina and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Inks

· Distress Oxide

· Autumn Scene Cover Plate Die

· White Fun Foam

· White and Red Cardstock

· Copic Paper

· Copic Markers

· Ink - Blending Brushes

· White Wow Embossing Powder and Embossing Ink

· Cosmic Shimmer Glue

How to Create

1) Cut out the Rectangle Die from the Autumn Scene Cover Plate Die from the white cardstock. Blend the Salvaged Patina all over the card stock and add Evergreen Bough Distress Oxides on the edges. Spritz water on top and dab off with tissue paper. Dab some of the oxides onto a paint palette and add water to add some splatters of colour. Leave to dry.

2) Stamp out the Winter Wreath stamp twice, three of the acorn leaves, two acorns, the trio of toadstools, one flower and the leafy branch onto Copic Paper. Colour with the Copics and Die cut out with the coordinating dies. Snip off the top of one of the wreaths halfway up at each side.

3) Using the wreath as a guide stamp and heat emboss the Happy Winter Birthday sentiment onto the ink blended card stock.

4) Stick on the full wreath around the sentiment with the cosmic shimmer glue. Cut out the fun foam using the coordinating die for the wreath and stick to the back of the half wreath using the cosmic shimmer glue and cut off the excess. Then stick this on top of the wreath using the glue. Sticking the trio of toadstools underneath.

5) Adhere the leaves onto the edges and the big acorn and acorn leaf onto the wreath. Then pop up the acorn at the bottom and the flower at the top of the wreath using some of the fun foam.

6) Pop the finished up piece onto the red card stock around 120cm x 150cm and adhere straight onto your card base.
